Why Some Foreigners Prefer Marrying Filipinas

The epitome of a typical Filipina

Beautiful in and out... smart and articulate... This is KC Concepcion Pic, an actress in the Philippines.
Beautiful in and out... smart and articulate... This is KC Concepcion Pic, an actress in the Philippines.

Filipinas when painted in a canvass would truly make a masterpiece stand-out, for their enormous charm is irresistible and their beauty is at par best with...

the other lass in other countries if not beyond compare. Their smile will indeed lighten up your day as if they put you in clouds with a very light feeling, dismantling your worries for a great while, could uplift your spirits and leave a lasting good marks in your mind.

Filipinas’ sex appeal is capable of making you helpless as it captivates a heart as if you’re in a state of trance, thanks to their black and shiny hair that truly makes head turn, a face that is truly a work of art, and splendid eyes that could melt you like an ice cream amid the blistering heat of the sun. Filipinas are truly a walking gem whose glitters will indeed last for the lifetime.

The physical attributes of Filipinas are complemented with their priceless inner features. Filipinas are beautiful inside and outside, a rare combination in a modern woman, a double trouble that will surely make mincemeat of a lad longing for someone to be his sweetheart.

Here are some beautiful pictures of Filipinas... Hope you like it hehehehe...

Filipina’s attitude and character are a cut above the rest. They are meek and amiable, but can be strong and persevering at times. Filipinas have warmth, sincerity and compassion, valuable things that makes them great friends capable of giving worthwhile companionship.

Filipinas are articulate and equipped with sense of humor and this makes them mingle with anybody else with relative ease.

With these great things that speak so much of every Filipinas, many foreigners go gaga and agog in courting and eventually marrying a lady from the Philippines, to be their loving wife and lifetime partner.

A Filipina wife is well-known for forming a great half of what we called a couple, who would use all of her precious time tending to the needs of her family, although strong and brave, will serve her husband ala king.

Filipinas are humble and loving creatures, they would do all things to make marriage flourish without let-up. While rearing kids to be responsible citizens, she would give her all-out motivation, thorough guidance and never wavering support to her kids to help them acquire education, a priceless possession Filipinas aims with so much zeal and passion.

Sweet, caring and supportive, a Filipina wife will not dominate a household, she would respect her husband’s decisions and goals, and will stay besides him through thick and thin. A Filipina can also step up when a need for this measure arises, she would seek employment or engage in activities related to business to secure ways of earning decent income to make both ends meet. Most Filipinas are highly educated and they’re tailored to earn income for her family if needed. Although most Filipinas are gentle they can be ferocious so please do not abuse and take advantage of them, for they are capable of defending their grounds well. Filipinas are very loving and affectionate and it is just right to shower them with love and give them what is due.

If you fall in love with a Filipina, I may count you as fortunate for you have a potential treasure to keep, a crown that will surely make you very proud and live the rest of your life in harmony and immense love.

To JJM:

According to Philippine history, Negritos are the first settlers of Philippines and they are considered as the first and original filipinos. We filipinos now, are basically a mixed of many races already like Spaniards, Chinese, Americans, etc. Though you don't see KC Concepcion as an epitome of a typical filipina but for me she is. She is an epitome of a typical filipina not because of her looks but of the VALUES that she has----the characteristics and values of a filipina. That's why the author captioned there---- BEAUTIFUL IN and OUT....

Thanks.... :)

Hello I am a Mexican American. One thing I can say in response to some of the postings is that I agree and as well disagree with some of the stuff put by some of the people. Then again everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I've been married to my wonderful and loving wife for 2 years now and have known her for the past 5 years. I have been living here in the Tarlac Province since the start of June and I have yet to see her family make financial request towards me or require any dependency of any sort. I truly find it unfair how some people would state that only Filipinas will leave you bankrupt and cheat on you and seeking a way to the American dream.

If one thing I have tried to do is convince my wife to go to the US with me but she has refused time and time again. She is not the gold digging type nor seeking any so called 'American dream'. The only thing she is seeking is the happiness of a family along with the unification that makes a strong family. She has been a strong supporter towards everything I do whether it's with my college education or tough decisions that tend to come up.

I agree with people who say, "Be careful to those who plan on marrying a Filipina" of course just like any part of the world you will find those who are like a leech. They will suck your finances dry and send you on your merry way and require you to support their own family without question. I have traveled to many parts of the world like Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Australia, England, France, Colombia, Mexico, and now the Philippines. I can assure you that all these places have women of all walks of life who will make a great life partner not only because they have a noble and loving personality. These places also have women who seek a walking ATM, but it's up to the guy. Nobody puts a gun to your head and tells you to get involve with that type of female. It is up to you to find the right person....one that will care, love you, and be there every minute that you need her.

I am not here to play the defender for all Filipinas but in reality lets see reality for what it's worth. If you don't like the Filipino culture because of some bad moment you had, well my friend, be fair. Remember that not all Filipinas are bad. I have met a lot who are like my wife who don't have a care in the world for a rich husband. If they are as bad as you consider them to be why are thousands of Americans flocking to the Philippines to marry or court a Filipina? There must be a reason for it.

I disagree with your comment that KC Concepcion is the "epitome of a typical Filipina". She represents what few Filipinas will ever obtain due to a perceived national image molded by US imperialist rule, white skin with white features. DO you notice that many famous Filipinos and Filipinos in the media are of western mixed race? They do not represent the typical Filipina, who lack western physical features. They only have white skin due to heavy advertising at malls and on tv, since its considered low class to be dark. I have lived in Sulu, Zamboanga, Cebu and Manila, and the closest Ive seen any Filipina looking like KC was Manila. And that was a rare sight!!! So please be sensitive to the Filipina and represent them in a non-imperialist way that doesn't cater to foreigners who have ruined the Philippines since the Spanish invasion. They should be proud of who they are and try not to fall into the trap of being white. They may be seen white here, but will always be an outsider in a western country.

Hello everyone! Just signed up so I'm new here and haven't even uploaded a photo yet. I'm not really good in English so please excuse my grammar lol!

I'm happy that someone like @GeneralHowitzer promotes not just the outer beauty of filipinas but the inner beauties as well. I agree that most filipinas are submissive due to cultural upbringing. The rest like are aggressive in certain areas of our lives. It's all about balance I guess. Too much of something isn't good, right?

Well, people always have something to say, whether it's good or bad, logical or illogical. A person's view of the world is influenced by different factors, mostly personal experiences. I'm glad you prefer to look on the positive side of the coin. MABUHAY filipinos! Have a great day ahead! Looking forward to learn more about this site :)

Anyone contemplating marrying a Filipina would be advised to read UltraMagnus' blog titled

"Be very CAREFUL when marrying a Filipina from the Philippines" found elsewhere in this hub.


Halwick 4 years ago

A most positive and rosey article.

But there is another side to Filipinas that most unsuspecting and clueless western men don't realize...until it is too late.

See the article on the following hub:

http://hubpages.com/relationships/filipinamarrying...

The article is titled, "Be very CAREFUL when marrying a Filipina from the Philippines".

This a MUST read to anyone contemplating marrying a Filipina.

For example, most western foreigners don't realize when marrying a Filipina is that HER family comes first and he is expected to support HER family through regular monthly remittances. Also her family will consider him to be the "Bank of America" with unlimited funds and make all kinds of funding requests. Before you know it he will have bought her parents a house, financed her siblings education, bankrolled her relatives' gambling habits, funded their business schemes, etc.

While the Filipinos are fun-loving, warm and hospitable, they are also mercenary and opportunists, especially where money is concerned.

Hi ..

I agree with some points u mentioned..

I would like to emphasis on one very sensitive & sometimes annoying aspect of a Pinay personality:

Why they are OVER jelous! that they might destroy their own happy marriage for just being over reactive to this matter.

jennifer rasmussen 5 years ago

hi, i was entertained by your blog. on my personal point of view, i think you are most likely stressing up the fact. i am a filipina,29 and married to a european guy 32..well, i cant say i am different but, i am a filipina that has over flowing pride.i can agree with you but on the otherhand, if majority of filipinas have the hidden agenda of marrying old husbands, it is none of my concerns anymore.but it hurts me to read that foreigners are being abused.but the question is who is to be blamed for their fate? wherever in the world you may go, im sure you will be able to find this kind of people. i think guys, you have to use your brains in choosing a pinay. don't just choose your dick alone. who would like to stroll in the mall with a grandpa or father figure beside her, and worst of all they are kissing in public? since you are showing more hindsights that you can be fooled, women will highly take advantage of you. am i right? correct me if i am wrong then. nobody is perfect. whatever race you marry if you do not know how to control the situation, you will end up bankcrupt.my husband have no side comment with my family because, we both don't send money and support my family. i have been travelling a lot and i never trained my family to be dependent on me. my suggestion to white men is, never marry a woman who shows her pussy on live cam, never marry a filipina who loves LV and chanel, never marry a filipina who is like having a worm in her butt, never choose a filipina who is the head of the family but with plenty of siblings and nieces and nephews. never marry a filipina who cant discuss both politics,science and maths, and most of all never marry a filipina whom you meet in the whore house. there are some areas in the phils where i truly doubt the sincerity of pinay. well, i suggest go to ILOILO city. it the only city that has no gay bars and only 2 or 3 whore house but i heared the mayor have removed those already.only normal pubs and bars that is open for all ages.old men like younger womenjust to have a fresh meal on their table.but young women shoose old men in order for them to get what they want-in short you have got to have money first. old men means pension. pension is money. so please be wise. choose a farmer girl not a sophisticated hot chick if ur too desperate to have a wife. and i assure you, you will get a full satisfaction in choosing that only get your wallet ready to help out her family....thanks pal for this site..

i married a beautiful pinay , in 2009, what i found as a white 50`s man , is this ! If you look online , u havea 50-50 chance, If u go there and not just for sex ! then u will find a trustworthy woman , esp if you find a local or farm girl! If you go to any country`s tourist sex or hot bar strip , you will find the scammer`s , yes sex is off the chart but try the girl that works in the laundry room , or hotel desk , 100% you will find love!I married a girl from hotel security , and couldn`t be happier.

Infadel 5 years ago

Helo Everyone/ I am certainly no expert or pretend to be when it comes to Filipina women. I have lived on and off in the Philippines since 1979 and on 11 different islands and this is just my experience when it comes to relationships and marriages with them. First of all let me say yes, I am married to a wonderful lady but it took me a while to find her. Most of the foreigners who seek Filipinas to marry go through the internet and or travel to the Philippines and stay in only a few places never traveling outside a select few cities. Even the majority of the embassy staff of the U.S. have never traveled around the Philippines except to the popular beach resorts and a few of the larger cities.

To begin with: The vast majority of the foreigners are much older than the Filipinas. They plan of bringing them back to their countries and believe they will fit in easily because they speak English. These Filipinas are separated from their families, friends, foods, culture, and way of life. Filipinas are very adaptable but it is still very difficult. Many Filipinas will meet younger and more attractive men who they become romantically involved and will leave their husbands once they have their Green Card. It appears that the more successful marriages are with older ladies in their 30s since it is harder for them to find a mate in the Philipines but there again not always the case. Think about this: why would a smoking hot 21 year-old lady end up with a 50+ man of average looks and background. This is a sad fact for many. According to the U.S. Embasssy from 2006 stats: 73% of all marriages end in separation once they have obtained their Green Cards. The best advice that I can give is to spend some time traveling around the Philippines (at least 1 month) and going off the beaten track. You will see some really cool things as long as you are some what adventureous. I've had more foreigners tell me that they feel they are in danger if they go to some of these islands. I tell them as long as they use some common sense and stay away from the Jolo Islands and parts of South Cotabato in Mindanao that they will be fine. Bad things can happen to anyone anywhere.

I could go on with stories about guys over the years who I have met here in the Philippines who got taken for homes, money, cars, and self-esteem but I won't go into it as you will have to learn for yourself. Finally, like in any other culture you have to date the lady you are interested in for a while, meet her family and spend time with them. Don't be afraid to try new things. The families can be some what demanding both financially and emotionally. Trust must be earned. Always respect your lady even if you don't always agree with her. I have had mostly good relationships but there are a few that come to mind that I'd rather forget. I just chalk it up to experience. Best of luck to anyone considering marrying a Filipina. Be patient and don't be afraid to ask questions.

I went to another state about a year ago after finding a filipina lady on a paid website,I,m in my 50,sand she is in her late 30,s she was here on a work visa and had been here for 4 yrs after meeting her we got married and she came a couple weeks later I helped in getting her green card after this she wanted to go back to the philippines to see her 10 yr old son,I told her to go back to where she lived here in the USA for a week and while there she broke communcations by not responding to my phone calls and then one day she shut off her cell phone for about 12 hours,So I started looking thru her draws here at my home and found a book with names of americans and e-mail address,s and telephone numbers the first number I called was a man who happen to be american he said he had met with her and spent the day and they slept together he said he had dated her for about a year and she told him she had gotten married and then divorced after getting her green card.I called her in the philippines and she admitted to this she was to be gone for 2 months but after me finding this out she asked me to reroute her flight back to the US and came back here the question I have is this is this I am a 100 percent service connected Veteran where she can go to collage and get paid to do so do you think she is using me to finish school and disappear after getting her degree setting me up for more heart ache?

LOL!! I am emmersed in the Filipino community in the US. Having a Filipino wife myself, and seeing what other American men are dealing with, you are describing a life and type of human(the filipina) that I have never been exposed to. Good luck to you if this is actually your life, but I do not know of another guy marrried to a filipina who is not in constant misery.

I do appreciate your article but it kinda puts us pinays in a pedestal. Not everyone of us is as what you described.

And I know that you mean well but it seems to me that what you're trying to say is the reason why pinays make the best wives because it's okay for us to stay at home and attend to our husbands every care and whim.

I find it upsetting that pinays agree to your article because we have to force ourselves to fit into these stereotypical gender roles for us to be attractive. And we are forced to remain backward in our ways instead of advancing and improving ourselves towards the future.

lenz 7 years ago

Kenny G asked a good question: are you promoting Philippine women as perfect wives for prospective husbands? Your style of writing makes you sound like a sleazy salesman (hehehe) if not something worse. It is this kind of thinking that makes life even harder for women in the Philippines who must deal with terrible poverty, not to mention the recent natural disasters. Who will write a hub about Philippine men? Do they make good husbands? Are they beautiful? Do help their saintly wives in the home or leave the domestic responsibilities to them? The Philippines is a country whose progress is held back to some degree by this kind of primitive thinking. Religion and crime go hand in hand when women are told to be like saints and men allowed to be irresponsible.

I heard some comments here (this is not my own ) that the reasons why foreigners prefer to marry Philippine women is because filipina are less extravagant and are thoughtful, afraid of divorce(lol); and aside from being caring and loving....Philippine is the best place where they decide to settle to live permanently in the Phils. Everything is cheap...dollars has great value and they are secured to live Phils with the dollars that they would earn from their country. Most of the percentage to marry filipina are those who are retirees.. :D

foreigners like to marry filipinas because they can be a 100 years old and still bag them an 18 year old filipina because it's almost guaranteed that if you're white, you can get almost any filipina you want, most filipinas prefer foreigners over their own kind. also, they have the mentality to serve and take care of their partners, they don't question much and they almost don't use their decision making capabillities so all they really know is how to serve=)

The ladies are beautiful indeed, but is this asite which introduced ladies to prospective husbands? I understand if you are from the Philipines, then you have to sell the beautiful images and qualities of your nation including the ladies. But I understand you are a man, in which case I congratulate you as you must have found a beautiful wife from there. I for one think these ladies are truly beautiful to look at, but I prefer the hub which highlighted the inner qualities of the ladies. This is what makes successful marriages, not external images, internal qualities lasts longer, external (looks) fades. I would love to meet a Philipino lady, for association to discover those inner beauties I know is inside all human beings.

Yeah it depends on wonderful people wakikik, the fact that many foreigners saying this hub speaks well about their Filipina wife hehehe, justifies the phrase "Direct From The Horse Mouth".

@lela hehehe you are perfect to your own ideas thanks for dropping by and time commenting... :)


lela 7 years ago

Respect her husbands decisions and goals. Wont dominate. Isn't it give and take! Lets all hope we have boys for children since the world is so good for the boy. Isn't the country a poor country? And for women to get out, what they have to put up with this crap. I surely hope they all take all you fellows for a ride, and being in one of the wealthier countries and being female, this is all very interesting, to know I am surrounded by immature little boys and I read the article on the prostitute where she is put down than donated to, of course some guys have to judge, they are god, and have to get something out of something, but they never judge themselves. You guys should be sent to live in poverty yourselves. You guys are not men or moral, and you are all disgusting

What is this? Every-one is an individual. Some come from poor countries and are exploited, or some become knowledgeable and cunning to get wealth out of having to and to be deceitfully charming, and some are con artists, and some are nice, some are bad, and this is of every culture. And every-one has a different personality within a culture. Sadly some of us are ripped off and some of us are the rippers off. If guys want a women to do as they say, they rip women off. If women lie and are charming they rip off. Or both rip each other off. If a women is ruled over, she is ripping herself off. No-one is the boss of anyone or should do, do, do, or dominate another. It's grotesque of the male once again.

@ what says --- you're redundant, and you're obvious and superficial hehehe hatchet job, you are spoiling my party... I don't know where you are up to...

Filipinas are indeed good marriage bondmate and you cannot take that away from them... I saw that with how my sisters, mothers, relatives here and abroad and other people (neighbors and friends) on how they shower their tender loving care to their respective family...

You're so repetitive, the syntax and context of your writing is identical to the ones above...

I already provided you answers above.

@atif-atif- i regretted I deleted your comment, but this what I say to you Filipinas will do their all to give their family the best thing they can that's why there are domestic helpers abroad... Whoa, your name sounds Arab would you think you're country will continue reaping development and progress without the aid of our talented and well-trained professionals (engineers, nurses, doctors and the more) and skilled workers...

Read this hub from paraglider and you'll be surprize with how Philippines contributed their workforce to sustain the progress of Mid-East nations.

the title of his hub is: Filipinos - The World's Finest...


what 7 years ago

just to correct any impression this hub may give that filipinas are meek..will not dominate a household or (weak/ subservient to men)...this is not true at all in most families...Filipinos for real have matriarchal families and depend on the strength of the woman to keep the family together and manage the finances. Loyal to their families but not slaves to their husbands.

But it's part of the culture (no divorce, hard to get an annulment unless you are rich, negative peer pressure against separation)to "work" on the marriage and stay together. Families or in-laws will actually help the couple stay together.

By the way, the image above of KC concepcion is NOT A TYPICAL Filipina. Several people are mestizos (mix with spanish, chinese, or European descent) but the MORENA,or dusky colored filipina with malay features still dominate.

I agree with much of this.. every person (male and female) I have met that were Filipina have been very beautiful people. They also tend to be very social people. Although I agree that Filapina females are amicable.. I have known a male that was extremely arogant. I am sure there are exceptions to ever cultures personalities, but I hope that he was the exception.

@ Susan and tksensei --- by the way I made a hub which is a special tribute to Venezuelans for winning the most Miss Universe title hehehe for your perusal, feel free to visit it when you have time...


GeneralHowitzer profile image

GeneralHowitzer 7 years ago from Land of Salt, Philippines Author

@tksensei --- The sculptor are given the privilege to sculpt his own masterpiece, and the same privilege are given to the writers they can also write what they feel like expressing their emotions and feelings, I based my write-ups in the things that are presently happening... No harm done tskensei... I am appreciating your comments don't worry...

@ Susan Ng- hmm, What drives me to write this article is the inspiration I see in my future wife... And it is a fact that many Filipinas are getting married to Foreigners annually, most of that marriages are successful while of course some we're not that fortunate.

I have relatives in United States that are married to foreigners and they are enjoying their marrriage.

Well I cannot suppress the way Filipinas behave in marriage and I will be very proud to say this to the world, for they are indeed very good wife material and that makes our women the Filipinas pleasing... But this is generalization though there are some Filipinas that are not good looking and just like in other countries there are (sorry for the word) ugly- duckling... and to set the real score beautiful or not Filipinas have the remarkable good inner beauty as I stated above. Beauty fades, while personality, character and attitudes aren't and most Filipinas have these attributes...

This article is not meant to oveshadow hehehe, i hope you read my article very well...

Anecdote from my article above:

"Filipinas when painted in a canvass would truly make a masterpiece stand-out, for their enormous charm is irresistible and their beauty is at par best with... the other lass in other countries if not beyond compare. Their smile will indeed lighten up your day as if they put you in clouds with a very light feeling, dismantling your worries for a great while, could uplift your spirits and leave a lasting good marks in your mind..."

Filipino blood is a mixture of Latin, European and Malay, and a sprinkle of Japanese, Chinese and American blood... No wonder there are a lot of fair looking Filipinas... hehehe... KC was an exceptional young woman in the picture above and she is my crush... and you know what the pictures of the two woman above (the ones that have picture gallery) is just taken from youtube, common beautiful ladies featured in the Song Prinsesa "Princess" hehehe, very beautiful women Filipinas are common here in the Philippines but still inner beauty is important. The testament of this is the strong finish of Filipinas in International Pageants, Philippines already won 2 Miss Universe Titles and have runnerup finishes in other pageants aside from The Miss U.

Thanks for commenting... and dropping by...

Heartwarming hub, albeit one-sided, don't you think? :) There is always more than one side to everything. :) And by the way, the pictures you showed here are of "mestiza" Filipinas (i.e. mixed blood, not pure Filipina). :)

To clarify: Your experiences as well as your feelings and preferences are valid and even wonderful.

However, to suggest that all women of a given race or ethnicity are beautiful, charming, brilliant, and the perfect companion is overdoing it.

@Lovepirate --- wow an awesome description of our very own Filipinas... your soon to be ex-gf or you'll be marrying with her hehehe is a rarity. Wow you just won in a lottery I guess nyhahahaha...

Take good care of her she is indeed irreplaceable and priceless... Congratulations and my warm best wishes to your wedding...


Lovepirate 7 years ago

Wow General!

If I didn't know better, I'd say you just described my fiancee' Leona to a proverbial "T".

She graduated Summa Cum Laude from The School of Economics at U. of P. (Diliman) in Quezon City in March of '08. So not only is she smarter than 99.9% of the people in her own country, she's also drop dead gorgeous. Now, she's the newest operations mgr., for a large multi-national customer service company. I'm just crazy about her, and vice versa. We're getting 'spliced' (married) in December. I'm a very lucky fellow. Indeed. Thank goodness she was on "Wowowee" one month ago... I can watch her clips on YouTube until I can get back to Manila. I miss her badly, and love her madly.

Filipina girls are the best!
